Projects / Mounttero


Mounttero automatically mounts most storage devices such as USB drives and cameras, DVDs, CDROMs, hard disks, and floppies. Devices are mounted when users opens their directory, such as /mnt/auto/cdrom, and are unmounted when the directory remains unused for four seconds.

      I just got smbfuse working on Linux
      I wouldn't recommend it on large networks with slow machines as it can chew the CPU, but it's quite impressive.

      Thankyou, I will try these soon.

      By the way, when I tried to run rc.autofs under Slackware 9 I just got "Unknown system, please port and contact". After some searching I found a script here: which works beautifully. Maybe you could put that on the site also?

      I just put links to related software on mounttero homepage. "SMB for Fuse" or "mkautosmb" might work like an automounted Samba network neighbourhood. Because SMB is not too secure, I think mounting sftp (ssh) would be more interesting.

      The first easy to follow howto I've seen on autofs.

      But what about automounting shares on a samba server or even the whole workgroup?
